Guessed Not Just for pedants (12) RE: Not Just for pedants 21 Nov 01

the French government have a long tradition of eschewing foreign imports like "le week-end", they even issued edicts on the American terms abounding in electronics, but in technical terms, American is the lingua franca (if you see what I mean)
needless to say they failed, engineers the world over want to understand each other. The inventor usually gets to name the process/gizmo and it often sticks.
